Movie Info

Julius Orlovsky plays himself in this disturbing film. He is released from an asylum after treatment for his catatonic schizophrenia. He travels to San Francisco to begin a film project about homosexuals, but he soon becomes disoriented and is once again hospitalized. After shock treatments and doses of Thorazine, Julius is release to the care of his brother Peter. Poets Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso appear as themselves. Christopher Walken and Roscoe Lee Brown make early big screen appearances. Julius' worsening condition prompted bringing in Joseph Chaikin to replace him before the feature was completed over a three and a half year period. The film was banned from public screening at the Venice Film Festival in 1968.more
